Trump Republicans toss responsibility in favor of bribery, polluted streams, wage inequality and guns for the Mentally incapable."

If you've been following the slew of House bills passed in the last few years, you would know Republicans don't give a damn about health care, the environment and public services.

Now that they're in charge, the real animal in the GOP has been let loose, ready to devour every last advancement in the last 100 years. Behold corruption, plundering our natural resources at the expense of clean energy, and giving "mentally incapable" seniors guns:
Reuters: Congressional Republicans are set to overturn a controversial anti-bribery rule aimed at U.S. resource companies such as Exxon Mobil Corp and Chevron Corp ... disclose payments to foreign governments. 

The House would try to kill regulations protecting streams and forests from coal mining's impacts, curbing methane leaks on public lands, and requiring employers to report workers' information as part of an attempt to end pay discrimination.
Remember when Republicans refused to accept reasonable gun regulations, and instead promised to keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. Well, they didn't mean that either. If someone has lost it to the point of where someone else has to handle their financial affairs, a gun is the last thing they should have:
Repeal a rule expanding background checks on gun purchases for disabled Social Security recipients to the hit list ... prevent the government from declaring some Social Security recipients unfit to own guns after they’ve been deemed mentally incapable of managing their financial affairs. The NRA lobbied for its reversal, arguing it would keep those in distress from seeking mental health assistance for fear of losing their rights.
